I have been watching DVD's using RealAudio and Windows media players but
I would like to return to the Dell player that came with my machine. It
asks me for a password so I can watch R rated movies. I assume I must have
put one in some time ago but I don't remember what it was. Where do I go do
see it?

My guess would be somewhere in the Registry.Try searching on the filename
for the Dell DVD player. Beyond that - ask Dell.

Thanks for your reply. Dell advised me to reinstall the
software(which I did). It appears that the DVD I am trying to play (Blade
3) has a rating not in my CyberLink DVD player that was added to my computer
at time of purchase. Of course, there is a 39.95$ upgrade offered! This
is my third time asking Dell support for help or assistance. All three
replies have been, "Sorry!"

I have been reading about Dell's reputation going downhill. You just added
to it. I guess that's why I've been building my own systems for years.

Just one more reason not to use bundled limited programs that come with a PC.
